Tourists will soon be banned from taking photographs or video at the National Archives main exhibit hall to help protect the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.
A rule posted in Monday’s Federal Register will take effect Feb. 24.
About a million visitors pass through the exhibit each year. While there’s already a ban on flash photography, archives officials say visitors still shoot about 50,000 flashes of light at the historic documents each year.
